For a while now I wanted to share my view on saving money… Some of them are things you never thought of.

Here are some of them:

PANTRY SAVE ACTION

Sometimes when money is a problem, we vow to only eat what we have in the fridge, freezer and pantry.  We have a tendency to buy anything anytime when we feel like it and then our cupboards are full of unnecessary goods and stuff we haven’t used in weeks.  I then use the website

www.supercook.com

AMAZING is the word for this site.  You enter all the products that you have in your cupboards and it will show you all the recipes that you can make! What a way to save money.  Remember to list everything. Even the spices and nice sauces etc.

NEXT….

YNAB

If there is any software that you SHOULD have, it would be YNAB (You need a Budget).  This software help you to set up a budget, enter your income and expenses and then see what you do during the month.  PLUS you can link the software to your phone and check anytime, anywhere.  You can even insert your purchases right after buying it at store.

LUNCH BOXES

It doesn’t mean that if you are saving money, your life has to be boring and dull.  Jazz up your lunch boxes for the children’s school or to work with a few tricks.

If you want some quick and easy recipes, subscribe to The One Pot Chef on YouTube and on Facebook or use the Supercook website.

Prepare the food in the beginning of the week and pack it in separate little bags, and place it in the freezer.  Then you can just take it out every night before.  It not only saves money, but time as well.

Some ideas are – Mini deep dish pizzas, Chicken Strips, Muffins, donuts, mini pizzas etc. Use your imagination.  It must be something that can be frozen and yummy if thawed.

BUY SMARTER

There are things in your house that you use a lot.  For instance toilet paper, meat and chicken etc.  Every household differs.  A good idea would be to get hold of wholesalers of these products and join with friends and family to buy from them together.  The reason for sharing is because you have to buy a certain amount to get it at wholesale prices.  Start a group where you can share info and deals to share…

PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU HAVE MORE AMAZING IDEAS… WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
